Event Recap: Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Visit

Fighting Nature Deficit Disorder while learning! On Oct 11, we organized two groups of 20 families to visit the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, located in Delta, BC. Volunteers from O.W.L. gave an introduction to the participants on the function of the O.W.L. Society, basic biology and behavior of owls, sizes and types of owls, dangers to birds and other wildlife, as well as what we can do to help birds and other wildlife. The 2nd half of the visit was an opportunity for the participants to tour the educational area of the facility. There they saw different species of birds of prey that include eagles, falcons, hawks, owls, and turkey vultures. They also learned interesting facts and information about the various bird species and also had the opportunity to take lots of photos!
